Grammy-winner Lorde has caused quite a stir on Twitter after the singer called out a Photoshop job... on herself.

The 17-year-old New Zealander posted a photo online showing two snaps of her taken during the same concert and wrote; “I find this curious – two photos from today, one edited so my skin is perfect and one real.”

She added; “Remember flaws are okay.”

Fans online were shocked that a high-profile artist had willingly posted the untouched photo next to a flawless-looking snap of herself.

“Oh Lorde, how I love you! Finally a celebrity that isn't insecure about her flaws,” one fan wrote.

“Don't really like Lorde that much but I'm glad she is pointing out how much Photoshop is used and reminding people the flaws are ok,” another tweeted.

However, others were sceptical.

“I'm going to sound very cynical here but I'm calling that Lorde photoshop thing an excellent piece of PR,” someone wrote.

Lorde, who shot to fame with her single ‘Royals’ last year, won both ‘Song of the year’ and ‘Best pop solo performance’ at this year’s Grammys.
